Mother indicted on 12 counts in son’s death


The mother of 13-year-old Jeremiah Valencia was indicted this week on 12 counts in her son’s death. 

Detectives say 35-year-old Tracy Pena found her son dead inside their Nambe home back in November. 

Her boyfriend, Tomas Ferguson, who is also charged in the boy’s murder, then allegedly forced her and his 19-year-old son, Jorden Nunez, to help him dump the boy’s body. 

Pena is facing charges of child abuse, tampering with evidence and obstruction.
